The Planned Progression of Parallel Purposes :: by Gene Lawley

Two parties have great plans for this world. One is bent on having a one world government in their control for selfish reasons of great magnitude. That party is made up of New World Order proponents who speak of their goal in glowing terms of peaceful law and order…for them. I have identified them as the Tower of Babel Syndrome, reaching as far back as that episode recorded in Genesis 11.

The other party is God, the Sovereign of the Universe, who seems to have a knack for letting mankind do their thing, seemingly, and then turning those activities into the progressive realization of His own ultimate purpose.

In this article I want to show how the actions of that cartel for world control will be, in fact, God’s vehicle to bring about their demise and His glory.

In Psalm 75:6-8 we are told this:

“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south, but God is the Judge. He puts down one, and exalts another. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed, and He pours it out. Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth drainand drink down.”

The continuity of the context indicates that the placement of a certain one in authority is to establish a basis for eventual judgment. One can observe that mankind has the unique incapability of righteously governing themselves for any lengthy time period. Paul writes to Timothy of this degenerating actuality in 2 Timothy 3:13, saying, “But evil men and impostors will growworse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

When Daniel laid out the interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in chapter 2 of the book of Daniel, the image of a man was seen, made up of various metals from head to toe. The head was of gold and represented the king’s regime and was followed by four other future kingdoms. Note the diminishing value of the metals as the future kingdoms represented unfold: “This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay” (Daniel 2:32-33).

The interpretation of the dream reveals five kingdoms represented by the image of a man. The first one, Babylon, had the head of gold–Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom. In succession, the next kingdom to rule was of silver that was displayed in the image’s chest and arms. It is later identified as the Medo-Persian empire, a duel leadership situation adequately shown as the chest with the two arms. The third kingdom was of bronze, shown as the belly and thighs of the image.

This one is identified as Alexander the Great’s Greek empire. It is said of him that his last complaint as he died was that there were no more worlds for him to conquer! Then, we come to the fourth kingdom to rule the world, known to us as Rome in the time of Christ. That one was shown as iron, a strong metal, but iron rusts and disintegrates over time. That is what happened to the old Holy Roman Empire—“holy” perhaps because it linked up with the Roman Catholic Church and fading away because of rampant immorality.

One thing is different, however, about this fourth one—it had an extension of two feet of iron, also, having ten toes, which were iron mixed with clay. That continues to imply a weaker, softer integrity of character, one that is saturated with the immorality and godlessness of a degenerate people.

In these recounts over these past centuries, it is easy to see that secular history is parallel with Bible prophecy. There could be questions of why did it take God so long to bring about the soon conclusion of mortal human history of manmade governments, ostensibly speaking, that is. Recall, if you will, that there were many centuries before God called Abraham out to begin the Hebrew nation and people, out of which was to come the Messiah, the Savior of the world, especially of those who believe (see 1 Timothy 4:10). And, in Galatians 4:4, the Scripture says this:

“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, bornof a woman….”

When John wrote of his vision in Revelation 13, he saw a beast rising up out of the sea having seven heads with ten horns having ten crowns on them. On the beast the seventh head was unclear—in chapter 17:8, it is described as, “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition.”

We know that it is speaking of that seventh head because verse 11 follows with identification of the beast’s eighth head, as, “The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.” (That “perdition” is the lake of fire, in which he and his false prophet will be thrown to burn forever and ever — Revelation 19:20).

The ten horns with ten crowns that John saw compares to the ten toes Daniel saw on his image of a man, and these compare to the ten regions the planners for a one world government have envisioned. North America is one of those regions and includes Canada, the United States and Mexico. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), activated in the late 1900s, is evidence of the progress of that planning, and no doubt has much to do with the obvious reluctance of national leaders to close borders and protect American sovereignty.

Daniel looked ahead and saw four kingdoms, yet that fourth one, the legs of the image, had extended characteristics—two feet and ten toes. John looks back from his standing in that fourth kingdom of Daniel’s vision, but the sixth kingdom of his vision. There were two kingdoms, or heads, prior to Daniel in Babylon—Assyria and Egypt. John writes of that seventh—and eighth—head as future. He says, in Revelation 17: 8, “The beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”

The history of the seven headed beast, as world kingdoms or world governments, is summed up in Revelation 17:10:

“There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.”

When Daniel 9:27’s prophecy of a coming confirmation of a covenant for seven years is activated, and the pretribulation Rapture occurs, that one who brings the covenant to pass will come out in the open, “conquering and to conquer,” as Revelation 6 tells us.

We see him working to bring together those ten toes to develop that New World Order that is now an open secret among the global elite. As that one world government, so longed for by the elite and developed from the foundation of a world-wide control of the money supply through the banking systems, it will only continue a short time.

Revelation 17:10, above, tells us that. Then, the Antichrist will tire of trying to work with those “ten horns” and will dump them and take over as the eighth head of the beast. The timing of this action will coincide with his entry into the temple and declaring himself as God and demanding the worship of all mankind on earth. It will happen halfway through that seven year covenant period, as shown in Daniel 9:27. (See also 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.)

Here we have advanced knowledge of God’s “planned progression” of His side of the parallel unfolding of secular plans for the world and those of our sovereign God. Since the days of Cain, man has had his own ideas about his destiny, and they did not include God.

Probably topping the list of frontline perpetrators of a one world government, a world-dominating kingdom, in these last few centuries, has been the Rothschild dynasty. From the earliest days of the development of banking systems, they have led the way. Presidents have been assassinated to retain control of the money supply of this nation. One Rothschild is said to have declared in the early 1800s, “Give me control of a nation’s money supply and I will not care what its laws are.”

Thus we come to Psalm 75:6-8 again, which declares that God sets up one and puts down another, meaning that He is the one who decides who will be the leader of a country. And with that revelation, we can recall the 2008 campaign rhetoric of Barack Hussein Obama saying, “Come join me in fundamentally transforming America forever!”

And again, his April 30, 2016, statement, “The end of the Republic has never looked better” continues and seems to highlight a soon conclusion to that theme of American destruction. Apparently, it was his way of summing up the real success of his two terms as president of the United States.

Those parallel plans of the secular world and the God of heaven are coming down to a single vision. We know what Bible prophecy says will take place, but we merely wait for the secular planners to activate what God has already planned for them to do.
